I’ve said in the past that I’m a very simple guy. I don’t need a lot of “stuff”. For that matter, once I find something that works well, I stick with it until forced to make a change (you know, like all guys). As such, I started running in old shorts that I had laying around and never really stopped. Of course, regular gym shorts don’t have any support for my money maker (money makers?), so I bought a few pairs of boxer briefs and got to running. I did this for years. Hell, I do this right now with some of the same shorts from 5 years ago!
But the people on twitter had spoken and a few months back I decided that I was going to throw
Chad made fun of me by saying that running with underwear on is like running w/ jean shorts. Sure you can do it, but it sure doesn’t make you look smart. He’s sometimes like a Buddha.

Maybe I’ll have to try running in jean shorts to mix things up?
Do you do anything that you know is different that the runner norm? I also wear cotton socks most of the time (But love my Zensah minimalist running socks) and I don’t put on deodorant before I run.
